  • Maybe also mention the LMS programme that was a direct result of the landscape report.
  • Synthesis: A synthesis of previous reports, case studies and project outcomes from the library systems environment in the UK and overseas. It will evaluate the potential to build on existing communities, products and services, generating an outline of the current state of the library systems landscape.Phase 2 - Landscape: Involves engagement and liaison with prioritised ‘pathfinder’ projects and with other relevant initiatives and entities within the wider environment. Enabling a baseline of the programme and evaluate the potential of projects to contribute to an understanding of future library systems infrastructure.Phase 3 - Evaluation and scoping: Analysis of the emerging options in order to scope the proposed service(s) and infrastructure.
